What says..

Strikingly friendly and calm atmosphere, with priority genuinely given to the development of emotional intelligence... No cultural opportunities wasted - poems posted on loo doors by head of English! ...The morning Meeting – a short period of silent reflection – is valued by the pupils...: 'It gives you time to think about what you want, or not think at all'.......

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.


This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Leave blank if you want to thank the school as a whole

Years you were there

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

We do not feel that we have particular special needs facilities which would mark us out as being better equipped than any other school of our type, ie one focused on a traditional academic curriculum aimed at select university application. We do feel that the Quaker ethos gives a particular style to the school which is manifested in the way individuals are treated, but this is open to all our pupils and not targeted on those with special needs or gifts. We do not for example have a special needs department, we do not have a dyslexia unit, we do not have particular facilities for physical special needs - indeed the old buildings present us with a real challenge in simply meeting the basic legislative requirements for accessibility. We will always treat each application sympathetically as any school is bound to do but we feel that there is a real danger for us in fostering expectations which cannot be met, because of our reputation for friendliness.
